B. F. Skinner

Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
I assure this committee that, if I am confirmed, I will be strictly independent of all political influences... essential to that institution's ability to function effectively and achieve its mandated objectives.
My roles in comedies from 'Austin Powers' to 'Tommy Boy' to 'Wayne's World,' were sort of comedic 'straight man' parts. My character on 'Parks & Recreation' is the comic relief in a comedy. To play a character that appears strictly for laughs is sort of new for me and really fun.
The nobility of a human being is strictly independent of that of his convictions.
'Strictly Sinatra' became a compromise between me and the producers, and neither of us liked the results much.
People think I appear on television to promote my image. That's not fair. I hate filming. I turned down 'Strictly Come Dancing.' But television is a wonderful opportunity to promote scientific ideas. 'Super Doctors' is a very thoughtful piece.
In each of my characters there is a little of me. Not strictly autobiographical but a little piece of my soul.
And strictly forbid that any quarrelling be at your meals.

Anton du Beke
